This is an excellent restaurant for lunch or dinner on a deck facing the Rio de la Plata. Great menu and service. Even if you are not staying at this boutique hotel, you should definitely find the time to enjoy their view and food.

I walked by this place in the afternoon and had to come back for dinner. The menu is limited but the food is amazing and well prepared. The ambiance is breath taking. Put this on your short list.
